Immediate past Governor of Ekiti state, Ayo Fayose, has slammed former President Olusegun Obasanjo for comments he made following the death of former lawmaker, Buruji Kashamu.
In a statement on Twitter on Saturday, Fayose said it’s regrettable that Obasanjo chose to make those comments after Kashamu has passed on. He said Nigerians will watch out for the former president own end.
“I commiserate with the family of Senator Buruji Kashamu for this irreparable loss and pray for the repose of his soul. The Almighty God will console those he left behind.
“I also condemn the statement made by former President Obasanjo on his (Kashamu) death.
“It is regrettable that Obasanjo could say what he said about Buruji Kashamu after his death and when he can no longer question him. Why didn’t he say that when Kashamu was alive?
“Can Obasanjo say in good conscience that he did not at some point collaborated with Kashamu and most of the things he (Kashamu) did politically were not with his collaboration?
“Nigerians will watch out for Obasanjo’s own end. He should stop forming saint because he is not. He should also remember that his own end will come too and nobody knows how the end will be” he tweeted.
Obasanjo had in a condolence letter to the Ogun state government said the late Kashamu evaded the law but could not evade death.
“The life and history of the departed have lessons for those of all us on this side of the veil. Senator Esho Jinadu (Buruji Kashmu) in his lifetime used the maneuver of law and politics to escape from facing justice on alleged criminal offence in Nigeria and outside Nigeria.
“But no legal, political, cultural, social or even medical maneuver could stop the cold hand of death when the Creator of all of us decides that the time is up.
“May Allah forgive his sin and accept his soul into Aljanah, and may God grant his family and friends fortitude to bear the irreparable loss” the former president said.
